Editorial Reviews

Unknown

“I loved this book. Issa Rae is brilliant, funny and loveably awkward.” (Mindy Kaling Is Everyone Hanging Out without Me?)

"If you like Awkward and love Black. Or love Awkward and like Black. Or if you're like me and just can't get enough of Awkward and Black in equal doses, then you will love love love Issa Rae and her Awkward Black Girl tales of Awkward Black Girlishness. That wasn't too awkward was it?" (Larry Wilmore The Senior Black Correspondent on The Daily Show and host of Minority Report)

“In her hilarious debut book, Issa Rae uses the brilliantly wry voice she's honed in her searing and necessary webseries to tell a story that is so personal yet so universal: awkward girl becomes awkward woman, and in doing so realizes that awkward is the best way to be.” (Lena Dunham Not That Kind of GIrl)

“A charming, sparkling memoir in excellent company with Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out without Me? (2011) and Samantha Irby’s Meaty (2013). Already a strong voice for diversity in media, Rae is someone readers of all stripes will love getting to know, however awkwardly.” (Booklist)
